[UPDATE] California Dreaming Departs Duluth

The California Dreaming restaurant in Duluth has closed.  The restaurant, located at 1630 Cross Pointe Way, with visibility from I-85, was located off exit 109, Old Peachtree Road.  The restaurant temporarily closed as of March 18 and has not posted to their facebook page since an Easter message on April 11.  ToNeTo Atlanta was unable to find any formal announcement of the closure, but the Duluth location has been removed from the company's website and "yelpers" report that it has closed. 

Property records indicate that the California Dreaming building, constructed in 2004, is about 11,000 square feet and sits on about 3.4 acres.  

California Dreaming is part of Charleston-based multi-concept restaurant group CentraArchy Restaurants.  The closure of the Duluth location comes about a year after the company abruptly shuttered its Kennesaw outpost at 745 Chastain Road, not far from Kennesaw State University.  There was talk after that closure that CentraArchy would reopen the restaurant with a new concept and menu, but there is no indication that there was ever any truth to that idea.  The property is currently being marketed as a "Ground Lease, BTS [Build to Suit] or Strip Opportunity." 

Following the Duluth and Kennesaw closures, there will be just one California Dreaming left in Georgia on Washington Road in Augusta.  In addition, there are also California Dreaming restaurants in Charleston, Columbia, Greenville and Surfside Beach, South Carolina, as well as  Spanish Fort, Alabama.  

In metro Atlanta, CentraArchy Restaurants continues to operate New York Prime in Buckhead and Joey D’s Oak Room in Sandy Springs.  The Tavern at Phipps in Buckhead remains temporarily closed. 

Are you surprised by the closure of California Dreaming in Duluth?  Did you even realize there was a California Dreaming in Duluth?  What is your favorite CentraArchy Restaurants concept?

This has been my go to neighborhood restaurant for the last two years. I would go at least once a week and have been driving by checking for it to reopen. The "regulars" will especially miss this location.

Sad to see them go. I was introduced to the restaurant in Augusta. It was a real gem, having quality and classic food with a nice atmosphere.

This is so disappointing. I loved this restaurant. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was nice. I have been checking for weeks to see when it opens back up only to find our that it never will. Please reconsider this decision.
